MARIE CURIE: The Courage of Knowledge

MARIE CURIE: THE COURAGE OF KNOWLEDGE (2017)Nevertheless, she persisted.  The first female professor at the Sorbonne, the first female Nobel Prize winner in physics, and to this day, the only woman to receive Nobel Prizes in two different categories, yet - as a woman in a male-dominated field - she was not allowed to live out her feelings.  French society turned Marie Curie's 'amour fou' with physicist Paul Langevin into a giant scandal, reducing the brilliant scientist to a banal adulteress. Her success had been tolerated only as long as she altruistically pursued her research at the side of her husband.  MARIE CURIE: THE COURAGE OF KNOWLEDGE examines the most turbulent five years in the life of this woman of genius: from her 1905 arrival in Stockholm to be awarded her first Nobel Prize, and 1911, when she overcame hostility and discrimination to receive her second.  In French with English subtitles.  Not Rated.  100 minutes.Thursday, August 3 at 7pmFriday, August 4 at 7pmAll Tickets $5
